While surfing E-bay I found this item. It has a low staring bid of .99 cents so I thought i would click and check it out that was when I saw the shipping rate, $130.00 flat rate. OH my that is totally crazy.
Go and take a look for yourself.

whats awesome about that is that you know someone is not going to read the whole thing and probably bid like $200.
Shipping on ebay has gotten out of control.

Believe it or not...that price might not be too far fetched.
USPS has raised their rates on shipping...(Heck, shipping a 4 lb box to Cali from MN cost $30+ for Priority :eeek)
Don't get me wrong...it's still friggin' HIGH...but hopefully that's because the seller will wrap it really really well and not trying to make some cash on shipping.
*Sigh*....my optimism always bites me in the arse.

I once came across something like this months ago where the shipping was high. I had to have it so I thought to give it a try. After biddin on an item similar to the shipping situation, I won and it was at low prices plus the shipping came around to be the "accurate" cost that it normally would sell for so in my opinion, this will sell cheap plus the shipping then it will be around the cost people normally pay for. I may be wrong but who knows.

The best way to see if someone is gouging just send them a message and tell them you or a friend of yours is local and ask if they'd accept pick up.

For fun, I just messaged him if he did local pick up. Clifton, NJ is about a 2 hour drive from me.

Exactly what do people think would be reasonable shipping cost for a package of this size?
Eh, who cares?
